Owens Corning Fiberglas (UK) Pension Plan Ltd: ChD 25 Jun 2002

The pension scheme trustees had obtained leave to issue proceedings to compromise a claim without naming any defendants under the rules. The beneficiaries sought leave to be joined.
Held: The urgency of the situation now required the proceedings to be allowed to go ahead without delay, but it would have been better for the trustees to have given notice of the intention to make the compromise to the beneficiaries at an early stage to allow them to be involved.
